The legacy of the rock/pop icon David Bowie lives on with the upcoming release of four classic Vans designs inspired by his art. This collection includes the Slip-On 47 V DX, Old Skool, Era, and Sk8-Hi models. For lovers of Vans or David Bowie and both there is something really fitting with this collaboration.
The Old Skool version is inspired by Bowie’s album Aladdin Sane and features the famous lightning bolts design on top of off white leather in the same colors as the original album art.
The Vans Slip-On 47 V DX receives a Hunky Dory makeover. The Vans iconic checkered pattern is remixed with faux fur and bound together by yellow suede on the Hunky Dory release.
Ziggy Stardust themes are now available on the Sk8-Hi thanks to this effort from Vans. Classic rock iconography is all over this Sk8-Hi release with the large Bowie logo and lightning bolts layered on black and white checkers.
The Vans Era Space Oddity is a simple and remarkable design. Featuring polka dots strikingly similar to the dots featured on the Space Oddity album art.
These being a Vans capsule release they are rumored to be extremely limited with prices of less than $100 on their initial release date which is scheduled for early April 2019. They can be ordered on Vans website while supplies last.
